@ gamesfan
sorry, can't help. I'm not using mameui.
I'm offering you the relevant files (old = before patching ; new = after patching).
Use a tool like winmerge to see which codeline differs / changes and transfer it to mameui sourcecode (it seems similar to mame sourcecode).

Prio, it's an app that adds new functions to the task manager, including permanent elevation.

I've done it, I've finally done it, damn them all to hell!!! :) :) :)

I've tried everything and finally found a fix for this, at least with my setup.  If you go into the actual MAME config (Config menu, emulators, mame) you'll see an option that says 'Non-blocking Wait Mode', I changed this to 1 (or 2 if your system is slow) and with the latest version of AM, you'll see a quick blank screen (if you're running Attract True Black, if not, it's your desktop) followed by the AM menu!!  Now if I could just figure out how to run Attract True Black to not trigger the Windows UAC...

I can't remember who it was, but a year ago I found a post from someone saying version 2.0.0-rc2 solved their problems, and it solved mine too.

That's odd that attract would actually crash because of a theme.

Some general debugging things I do.
  • Set attract in windowed mode so you can see console/terminal at the same time.
  • Verify you have correct dependencies (modules) for theme.
  • Use debug plugin to reload layouts and show framerate.
  • Print to terminal a test string or variable to string to narrow down your error. If already using helpers module, there's a print function to include a line return making it easier.

Everything you describe seems to be correct. Are you using a good 2+ amp power adapter? I have seen ffmpeg fail when compiling for no apparent reason. Since it's a new build I would try it again, it might have been a fluke. I'll also mention you can use a "-j4" flag after the "make" commands when you're compiling. This will use all 4 cores of the Pi3 and speed things along.

May I kindly suggest you mention this flag in the first post? Would have been nice to know about before waiting through the hour+ compile!  ;D
General / How to troubleshoot a theme crashing?

Sorry if this is a super easy question - I have been searching for an hour or so with no luck.

I have attract mode working on my build.  Windows 7, 64 bit Pro, using the 64 bit version.   Attrac-Man and some of the other basic themes work fine, but when I try to use flat-blue it just crashes. 

I tried setting --loglevel -debug to no avail.

Basically, everything loads and then Attract-mode just crashes, with a windows method that says "Attract-Mode is not working".  Where do I start troubleshooting this?

many thanks

Pete ( a noob)
